Spotted this on the Hardcourt blog. Scan is from Fixed Gear on Flickr. Photo is from a match at Hearne Hill! Incidentally a bunch of old polo bikes were recently rescued from Hearne Hill…

Hello European Bikepolo Teams
We’re glad to invite you to the first European Hardcourt Bikepolo Showdown. The Tournament will take place on the 18th of october as a part of the Bicycle Film Festival in Zurich. We have confirmed registration form all over Switzerland, Germany and the U.K. Of course the main challenge will be to beat the current european champion Team Basel. We will play in a big warehouse so you dont have to worry about weather and temperature. Besides Polo and the Movies there will be other Bike Messenger related stuff going on all over the weekend. So we promise that the journey to Switzerland will definitely be worth it. If you’re interested in entering the Bike Polo Tournament please write an email to email@example.com to register. More Info and a flyer will be up soon. Check back on fahrradkurier.ch for updates!
This looks good, and playing in a big warehouse sounds like fun, more info on http://bikepoloshowdown.wir24.de.

Yesterday was a day of packed polo action as around 30 teams competed for polo victory in court built for the competition next to Shoreditch Park. In the end Bike Polo Munchen walked away with the trophy and there were some very exciting games along the way. Well done to everyone who played, took part and organised! More follow up soon…
But for now look whats coming up…
This weekend – London’s Calling, a follow up to last year’s great event….

I’ve always wondered what was going on with the ancient polo bikes which were rotting away at Herne Hill Velodrome. They had been used for grass games in the past but recently we have heard nothing of them. So it was great to here that Rollapaluza CC has recently purchaed the 11 reminaing bikes and now plans to totally overhaul them so they can be used once again!
Apparently they need quite a lot of work on them so any donations of time and spare parts (26″ wheels!) would be much appreciated. The aim is to get them fixed up and suitably stored at Herne Hill so we can eventually play some grass games.
